About Argentata dell Etna GoatsAbout Argentata dell Etna Goats

Argentata dell Etna Goats are from Etna and Peloritani (Sicily), Italy. They are also raised in the provinces of Enna and Palermo. They are named for the volcano, Mt. Etna. It’s unknown how they were developed; however, they have similarities to Garganica, Ciociara Grigia, and Cilentana Grigia Sheep.

Their coat is grey shading from light to dark with silver glints. They have rough, average long-haired and grey skin. Argentata dell’Etna females have upright horns and the males’ horns are very large and wide apart.

They are suitable for both milk and meat (kids around 12-14 kg alive). Milk is used for typical local cheese varieties.

At the end of 2013 the total population is not more than 7000.
